Northern Nevada's First Public Biofuel Station Set To Open In Fall

MINDEN (AP) - Construction is under way on the first public full-service biofuel station in northern Nevada.

The Bently Biofuels station featuring biodiesel and ethanol is expected to open in Minden in September.

For years, Bently has sold a variety of biofuels to customers ranging from environmental activists to company motor pools.

Most of the biomass used for its fuel is cooking oil collected from restaurant fryers.

Bently officials acknowledge biodiesel is not always cheaper than standard fuels. Their prices for biodiesel hovered just over $4 per gallon last week.
